Why is Archaon such a cooler BBEG than Abbadon?

>> No.71059995

Chapter Master, The Exalted - Archon Ra - Archon Ra is a solemn man on the outside who’s dedicated himself to the destruction of the Chaos. But as many of his captains know is a deeply wounded and vexed man. He was born long ago approximately sometime around the closing of the 31st Millenium, on a world that had known the touch of a Primarch. His homeworld was peacefully brought under the wing of the Imperium by the Red Cyclops, son of the Emperor Magnus the Red. His world was isolated and far from normal Imperium space, so his people never stopped worshipping Magnus as a herald of the Emperor and their hero nor did the Imperial Truth fade.

He’d grown to aspire to be like the Thousand Sons, though that changed when he was kidnapped as a boy to be a part of Cawl’s Primaris project. Ra awoke in the 41st Millenium to find his golden Imperium rotting. To find someone who he’d worshipped as a hero was partially responsible for this rocked him to his core.

Ra was amongst the first Primaris to leave the vaults of Mars and served as a veteran of the Indomitus Crusade. During his service, he distinguished himself enough to be made Chapter Master of a new chapter to be formed in the Ultima Founding. His chapter would be named the Sons of Ra and they were to shepherd the world of Duat and its subsector.

Even though they were officially sons of Sanguinius; Ra never felt it to be right and had his feelings confirmed when they got their hands on Thousand Son gene-seed. They were sons of the Cyclops. Since this he has led them on many crusades across the border of the great rift fighting daemons and heretics, only returning to their desert world to replace heavy losses.

He rarely leaves the battlefield once they engage, and even with a long time for repairs, his own modified armor is typically pot marked with craters and etched with deep gashes and groves, his golden armor dull and worn in places to almost silver.

Eh, you do you, but I don't see how that adds anything of significance really, like a single galaxy is already so incredibly vast and myriad, I can't really think of how adding multiple galaxies changes things in an interesting way.

Like, ignoring the fact that the lore is set up that the imperium is limited to one galaxy, what does going to another galaxy do that couldn't already be stated to exist in this galaxy? I guess it could be used to setup another imperium sized civilization if they really had an interesting idea for a new *large* faction, but other than that, 40k doesn't suffer for a lack of scope with one galaxy really, and I don't really see a huge benefit of changing the 40k universe to its very core by suddenly making it a tiny player in a universe of galaxies.

That's just my two cents though, plus it takes some of the Tyranids mysticism away.

So out of the new regimental doctrines that caught my eye, these two stand out in particular, especially what happens when you combine them - which for reference purposes I'll call the Ganger doctrine.

since most enemy models have at LEAST a 6+ armor save the Lord's Approval doctrine is pretty much always in effect, and bonus hits always work too (turning WS4 into WS3 and WS5 into about WS4), with the net result that this doctrine seems to come into play more advantageously than the Catachan one.

Assuming a GEQ target, chances of unsaved wounds are:

>Catachan Guardsman vs GEQ:
WS4, S4, T3, 5+: (1/2 x 2/3 x 2/3) = 22.22%
>Ganger Guardsman vs GEQ:
WS(3), S3, T3, 6+: (2/3 x 1/2 x 5/6) = 27.78%
>Catachan Conscript vs GEQ:
WS5, S4, T3, 5+: (1/3 x 2/3 x 2/3) = 14.81%
>Ganger Conscript vs GEQ:
WS(4), S3, T4, 6+: (1/2 x 1/2 x 5/6) = 20.83%

About a 5% increase in hits, which constitutes a 25% increased effectiveness on guardsmen and about a 33% increase on conscripts. Not bad. Vs MEQ:

>Catachan Guardsman vs MEQ:
WS4, S4. T4. 3+: (1/2 x 1/2 x 1/3) = 8.33%
>Ganger Guardsman vs MEQ:
WS(3), S3, T4, 4+: (2/3 x 1/3 x 1/2) = 11.11%
>Catachan Conscript vs MEQ:
WS5, S4, T4, 3+: (1/3 x 1/2 x 1/3) = 5.56%
>Ganger Conscript vs MEQ:
WS(4), S3, T4, 4+: (1/2 x 1/3 x 1/2) = 8.33%

Showing an increase of about 3% here, which is a relative increase of 37% on guardsmen and almost 50% on conscripts, OVER THE MELEE REGIMENT.

Even accounting for Straken, this could open up new melee options for guard. I want to try this with some buffed conscripts. See if I can make a tarpit that actually hurts.

Tell me about /yourdudes/, anon. I just built this lad.

Captain Steele had a long and storied history in the Imperial Guard, before being in an extremely rare event, honorably discharged.
Through many battles and campaigns Cpt Steele fought, and over time it became apparent to his superiors that Steele was, to put it lightly, a fucking numbskull.
Over many warzones, various commissars attempted in vain to get rid of Steele, sending him and his constantly renewed squads into suicide mission after suicide mission, and each time the veteran would somehow stumble back unscathed, though his squad would invariably have died to a man.
The man, it must be said, was utterly blessed by the Emperor, for no matter what the circumstances, Steele somehow seemed to make it out alive. Desperate to be free of the idiot, but without proper cause to execute him, the higher ups of the sector militarum simply decided to let the man retire honorably, letting him go home in his birthplace of Necromunda, where he could bother the locals freely. Steele quickly found employment among House Orlock, who were ecstatic to have such a decorated veteran amongst their ranks, until they realized the man for what he was.
Captain Steele favors the plasma gun as well as a plasma pistol, normally considered a suicidal combination. The warriors of House Orlock freely admit that the man has a knack for avoiding bad circumstances, but all the same they keep a wary distance from the man said to carry an Imperial relic where his brain should be.

Eh... They've made mistakes but I see them as largely being non-issues. They roll back the options in the new model kits, but I already have literally thousands of bits to fall back on, and 3rd party models and bits are more available than ever. The primaris lore is weird, but it literally only exists until regular marines are phased out, as soon as they're gone it just goes back to being marine stories about marines.

Yes. Ork Boyz are almost completely out of the meta at this point, with the double whammy marginalization of Grots being more effective for building detachments, and Marine Meta making charges from fragile CC mobs a sucker's bet.

They're not completely useless as they'll be fine against any other type of army, but I certainly wouldn't bring more than two. Ork meta has almost entirely shifted over to shooting with CC being a supplemental option for cleaning up a unit in one turn after shooting them.

Goffs are still fairly popular, and always been, simply because they are the basic orks to the letter. Their rules do hold them back with 8th admittedly, but it's not like Blood Axes or especially Snakebiters situation (honestly what's even worse for SB is that the few who do choose them end up choosing them for lorelet reasons because they confuse SBs for feral orks). Evil Sunz are the only really big band wagon ones I'd call with 8th edition giving so many good rules, outside that: BMs, FBs, and DS all got equal share of bandwagoning on same level with each other (8th was probably one of best things to happen to DS' popularity). Pre-8th non-Goff klans were not really that popular, though you had some wild players who love shooty or really love vehicles gravitating one way or the other.

I've nearly started Orks a few times, and it's been Bad Moons several times, but I've spent a lot of time playing aggressive, short range shooting horde (and light horde in the case of Sisters) armies and wanted to switch it up to be a bit more melee.

Goffs aren't -bad- but they aren't great either. Some good stuff mixed with a fair bit of bad. Like I want to like Skarboyz, but I hate that they locked it behind CP instead of just making it a Goffs unit that maybe cost 1ppm than standard Boyz.

I think he means Black Legion is very popular, but people tend to rarely care for Abaddon. Though personally I am not sure if this is true, Abby seems to have decent popularity outside of 4chan. Ghaz on other hand has divided opinion for people, good portion of Ork playerbase don't particularly care for him, or any big named orks (for that matter) outside of their klan loyalty like say with Nazdreg or Snikrot.

>Is it though?
It is. You have to build your own miniatures and paint them and base them and come up with fluff for them. You are encouraged to convert and kitbash and improve your painting. Internet community is rich with painting and modelling advice, and people doing creative conversions or painting to a high standard are always praised. If the hobby wasn't inherently creative they would have been just met with incredulity, like if you painted your soccer ball or your weightlifting plates.
>Either you go the "cheap" way and buy from recasters, buy cheap paints, and do it all yourself and you've spent dozens or hundreds of hours

That was the case at the beginning of 8th but since devastation of Baal different areas of the galaxy are flat out experiencing time at different rates due to the rift.

++The Blind Father
The Blind Father is the current Chapter Champion of the Stern Judges. Like all those before him, he abandoned his birth name upon taking up his office,trading it for one from the totemic beings of Pangaean folklore. This dour Champion chose for himself the title of the Blind Father, the legendary trainer of heroes, who was famed for his fluid use of even the heaviest sword. Indeed the Champion emulates this very style on the fields of war, fighting with a terrifying combination of overbearing strength and perilous balance.
The Blind Father reserves for himself the oversized, jet-black relic blade Dwynspath, older than him by three millenia, forged from the cold metal of extinct polar volcanoes. Whilst haughty and rebellious in the hands of all others, the two seem to have reached and understanding born, so the Chaplains say, from their unity of spirit. Indeed, the ancient weapon’s power field now strikes with such effortlessness and finality that the blows of all other blades in the Chapter are mere chafes by comparision; an Ultramarines captain witness to its bloody work described it as “not from your Pangaean calderras, but some corner of hell.”

Laesandyr the Rose. Daemon Prince of The Shining Roses, a Slaaneshi Warband.

He represents the chivalrous knight, has an obsession with romance and spreading love and peace to all around.

Those who he deems worthy of accepting his gift of love and peace are given the offer to join his "empire", they will recieve protection from the warband in exchange for gifts of novels, paintings, music or any other form of creative art (including the obligatory love-making).

Those that refuse this are given an ultimatum; join or die. Laesendyr and his Roses are more than prepared to force their will upon the galaxy and are no strangers to war.

They are willing to accept all into their empire, save for the Eldar and those who walk the path of Khorne and Nurgle. They see Eldar as an oppurtunity to gain Slaanesh's favour and killing Khornate followers as doing them a service by putting them down. The Roses will often clash blades with Nurgle worshippers, disgusted by their impure forms.
